Even if Le Pen gets crushed, it’s still a huge advance for French fascism that she is one of the final two. According to commenter Cheerfull, estimates are that 25.3% of French ballots were returned blank. That anyone on the left would leave a ballot blank with Le Pen on the ballot basically demonstrates why the political self-righteousness and ignorance of large sections of the left explains much about why Donald Trump and Theresa May have won.

I’m afraid people who want to deny the importance of the Comey letter by imagining some kind of white nationalist Bradley effect and asserting that Trump was really ahead all along are going to need a new excuse — there’s zero evidence for this domestically or internationally.
